Owner's directions

Albergue de Cabañes is situated at the entrance to the Liébana district.If you are coming from the Desfiladero de la Hermida (Mountain Gorge), from the coast, when you enter the valley, at the Tama junction, turn right at the sign for Colio-Viñon and go up, always following the road to the right. After the first junction for Viñón, you will see the signpost for the village of Cabañes.

If you are coming from Palencia or León, you can enter Liébana through the mountain passes of Piedrasluengas and San Glorio respectively, crossing the district towards the coast, and before you leave the valley, you will see a signpost on the left for Tama.
